Stephanie is the Creative Lead at Punchdrunk, the award-winning British theatre company known for pioneering a new approach to experience design. Working across theatre (Sleep No More, The Drowned Man), television (The Third Day), VR (Believe Your Eyes), and games (Silverpoint), Punchdrunk places the audience at the heart of the action and aims to create visceral, thrilling experiences through innovative design and performance.

Since joining Punchdrunk in 2011, Stephanie has worked as a creative, writer and producer. She launched the company's first Research & Development programme in 2017, and is a seasoned experience designer and collaborator, working across both live and digital spaces. Stephanie is interested in non-linear, multi-platform storytelling, looking at ways theatrical worlds can be brought to life in unusual places. Her most recent work for Punchdrunk includes Kabeiroi, a 6-hour long show across the streets of London, and The Third Day, the company's first television series.
